As you can see mine is not very good and can often go below 1 Mb/s. And my server seems to change location when it feels like it - Coventry, WTF?

I have a bad service with Virgin, apparently 50mbs fibre optics isn't available in my area yet. "try next year". They've said that for nearly 3 years! :/

Are you on 10mbps at the moment? My friend had 10 for 2 years and never once got over 2mbps down, moved upto 50 about 2 weeks ago and hasn't dropped under 49mbps in any test so far. He lives under a mile away from me... Joke, huh?

On a 20mb plan.

the internet is through talktalk (free broadband), something makes me think they just bought out another small company and combine it in their packages in certain areas.

Mine has been known to go way below that ^

I can't believe in this day and age some of us can't even get 1Mb/s but others enjoy 50 Mb/s.

Yep, 10mbs my arse. I called them a couple of times, and they said "Up to" 10 megabits. That reading was actually higher then i usually get. I'd be lucky to get over 2mbs most of the time. I can't wait until fibre optics are available in my area, we're already too far behind the rest of the world! I bet Ghana have at least 10 mbs interwebs, using copper wire just stuck in the side of there laptops! sleep.gif

Ive been asked this before. Im on talktalk. so I searched the internet and wikipedia brought this up: Opal Telecom is the business broadband and telephone provider of TalkTalk.

It appears that talktalk bought them out a few years back and they just sell the packages that are still in opal areas.

ohmy.gif What the fuck do you need 100 Mb/s for unless you are a corporation, or intend to download every movie and every song in the whole world? Is even 50 Mb/s worth the cost?





WTF?! I got better and I got worse, but this is about average of several tests. I pay for 16 Mb/s. dry.gif

Then I used a different test site and got much better results:
Ping: 85 - 266 ms, average about 120 ms.
Download: 10.62 - 43.96. Average 24.88 Mb/s. Out of 34 tests, 21 consecutive tests had above 20 Mb/s.
Upload: 0.32 - 0.63 Mb/s. Average 0.45 Mb/s.

This is more than I need, I'm gonna lower the speed and lower the bill. It started with 704 kb/s many years ago, and the speed has been upgraded almost every year, for the same cost. I don't need more than 5 Mb/s actually. This is a waste of money. sleep.gif
demon
Arrggh lol, it took me an half hour to do the speed test and post this. Jumpy.gif


56k analog modem. (Windows says the speed is 44k).

What is 0.03 Mb/s converted to kb/s?

What the hell is that for a ping time??
cuda is your boi
0.03 Mb/s = 30 kb/s something.
demon
Windows said the connection was 44k, but 30k could perhaps be the real speed.

0.1 MB is not equal to 100 kB, so I don't know if 0.1 Mb is equal to 100 kb? How is this working?


Anyhow, it's good to post by broadband again.
